My new single ‘Blades of Grass’ is out today! You can stream or buy it from your favoured site here:
I think of ‘Blades of Grass’ as a joyful song for a desperate time. It is the second single to be taken from my upcoming fourth album ‘A Reckoning Bell’ and celebrates our unavoidable human fragility and wild need for companionship.
If the past few years have taught me anything it’s the freedom to be found in the emotional honesty of life’s tougher moments – that nothing matters more than love and sometimes all you can do is be there. The song and cover artwork feature my wife Rhia who has taught me so much about the quiet resilience of the human heart.
The beautiful video that accompanies the song is another experiment in distance collaboration. It was made by and features my amazing friend, the musician Leena Culhane in Santa Monica, California and centres around our everyday acts of finding joy in desperate times and the memories we carry with us wherever we go. You can watch the video here.
I hope this music can be useful for you.
Onwards with love and fierce determination.
